Arvest Bank Among ‘World’s Best’ Again in 2020

Arvest Bank has been recognized by Forbes magazine as one of the “World’s Best Banks” for 2020. This marks the second consecutive year it has received the honor, which is based on customer feedback.


Forbes produced its “World’s Best Banks” list in collaboration with analytics firm Statista. The list is based on an independent survey from a sample of more than 40,000 bank customers across the world.

Arvest ranked among the top 10 on the list of U.S. banks. The full list and an accompanying article can be found on the Forbes website.

“We often talk about our culture, our service philosophy, our commitment to the community, etc., but what a phenomenal feeling to know that those we serve recognize the difference,” said Chad Evans, president for Arvest in Joplin. “We trust that all our customers know we are more committed than ever to providing the solutions they need, especially during such an uncommon time. I also want to thank our associates for the roles they play and the commitment they continue to show every day as we prepare to resume some sense of normalcy in the coming weeks and months.”

All financial institutions offering a checking and/or savings account were considered, and survey participants were asked to identify all banks where they have opened checking or savings accounts. Participants then rated those institutions on five criteria: trust, terms & conditions, customer services, digital services, and financial advice.

This honor is the first Arvest has received from Forbes in 2020. In addition to being part of last year’s “World’s Best Banks” list, Forbes named Arvest one of “America’s Best Large Employers” in both 2017 and 2018, as well as one of “America’s Best Employers for Women” in 2018.
